Skincare Cosmetics Retinol Night Cream Reviews pique interest.
The line also features a day cream, but I prefer to do my age-maintenance routine at night, so today I’ll be reviewing their night cream. Just as a bit of background, I’ll let you know that I am 56 years old and I’ve only used the Olay line of anti-aging products before (their night cream), so as far as experience with anti-aging products go, I’m no expert.
My main reasons for seeking out a good anti-aging cream is that I am indeed aging. I am now in my early forties and my basic moisturizer isn’t doing the job anymore. Perhaps more significant than anything else, my skin isn’t doing its job anymore- my skin texture is rough mainly because of the accumulation of dead skin cells that simply won’t slough away on their own. I prefer not to use a physical exfoliator, so in order to get rid of the roughness, I opted for a chemical helper.
In addition to rough texture and dryness, my skin also has uneven tone with dark areas around my eyes and mouth and tiny freckles and sunspots spread across my nose and cheeks. I also have some fine lines and my crow’s feet are starting to become visible. So, taking all of these issues into consideration, I needed a good cream to help me out. For my husband’s sake, I don’t like putting things on my face at night, especially nothing “anti-aging” because this type of product tends to have a certain smell and texture, so instead of going with a night cream, I opted for Skincare Cosmetics’ Day Cream.
Every time I encounter a product that is a duo or advertised as a “step” that knowledge immediately affects my ability to properly judge each individual product. So of course, I went in thinking that the day cream was either going to be too heavy because it is paired with a night cream, or too light, for the same reason. I wanted something that could work on its own, and I have to say that these products are individual items- You will benefit just as well from using one item than from using them both together.
After finally making my decision to use Skincare Cosmetic’s Retinol Day Cream, mainly because of the retinol content, I looked up some final reviews online and finally made the purchase. The little jar of product is quite small, but a little goes a long way since I’ve bought it, I’ve had the cream for over seven months and the jar still has about four months’ worth of product. So as far as value goes, this product makes the cut and it is not expensive either- you can find it for $30 pretty much anywhere (I recommend amazon).
The first thing I’ll talk about is the feel of the cream. As I said before, I was worried that it could be too light since the company sells a night cream as well. The understanding is that if you used the night cream, you won’t need as much moisture in the morning. Totally wrong assumption- my skin did not feel deprived of moisture for one moment. While the cream is quite light, it is still effective enough to make my skin feel moisturized for the entire day. Also, the lightness of the cream makes it so comfortable to wear during the day and the scent is very soft and pleasant- not overpowering at all. The cream does absorb quite fast and leaves your skin feeling dewy. This is a sensation I like, but if you don’t like that after-absorption moistness, don’t worry- the cream will soak in completely in a matter of minutes and then you can apply your sunscreen, primer, and whatever else you use during the daytime.
Since I began using this cream, the overall condition of my skin has improved dramatically. For one thing, the dry patchy areas I used to get weekly are no longer an issue and my face feels smooth all over. As far as how my skin looks, the overall tone has improved and those dark areas I used to have around my eyes and mouth are not as visible. If I want to, I can completely cover them with a bit of concealer, whereas before even this was an issue. I will admit that I didn’t start to see any improvement in the clarity of my skin until about five months in, but once I noticed it, I decided that this was definitely a cream I always want to have in my beauty stash.
Something else I’ve noticed is that the firmness of my face has increased and I no longer have “wobbly” skin like I used to. My skin seems to be more in-place than it did before and a lot more supple and bright.
Overall, I am very happy with my results. This cream has shaved a decade off my face and given me fresh skin reminiscent of my youth. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something that wears light, is effective in targeting aging skin, and is affordable. Also, this cream won’t make you overly aware of your aging process and your efforts to avoid it because you’ll use it during the day. Never go to bed with a face full of goo!
